it has been quite awhile since i’ve done my weekly iPhone pic recap, so this is more like a month’s worth!


sushi monday’s are my favorite date with sean


my latest installation at the kids’ school


made it about 5 days through jillian’s 30 day shred #winning


new babies = spring!


i’ve visited my parents4 times in about 5 weeks (pretty rare) and it was great!  this is my favorite corner of my childhood home


my parents walk together every morning. i love getting to join them!


3 days a week and si just earned his orange belt!


gracie was made a sign for some friends who were visiting


flowers + antlers = my only spring decor


gave this little twerp a hair cut.  gosh i love him!


i played the role of super cool fun mom and took the kids to dinner, ice cream, and the movies!  also, cinderella just might be my new favorite movie – so good!


i did a little hand lettering at fred & betty’s (our school’s thrift store).


this is what gracie gets to do for school for her reading assignments!


this is one of those pictures that we’ll hold onto for the wedding slideshow – we’d like to have that little girl in our family one day ;)


my favorite human


we nixed our original spring break camping plans due to rain and headed to my parents’ house instead and got SNOW!  sitting there, watching the snow fall for hours, my best friend by my side, the kids playing in the background – couldn’t have been better!


silas was peeved because i grabbed him out of the nice warm car for this picture.  but it was worth it!


i guess we were supposed to have a #4 to round things out ;)


the forks is my favorite local restaurant by my parents’ house – so yummy.  i love that we can just line all the kids up at the bar – i remember doing that every summer as a kid!


the girls started getting stir crazy so my mom got them some magazines to cut up.  gracie came up with this awesome layout and gave the nester a daughter!


i’ve been putting in some extra hours at the thrift store and this guy comes with me once a week.


we found rot, mold, water damage and all sorts of other things hiding in our front porch.  this big redo has turned into a HUGE project.  good times.


when i have a lot of my plate i tend to redecorate rooms or start unnecessary projects, hence the girls’ room getting rearranged. #somuchtodo


and after the end of all of this crazy, God is so good.  I was sitting in my back yard, waiting for dinner to finish on the grill, reflecting on my crazy week.  each time i felt i was going to lose it this week, God showed me grace and love through my family.  He met me when i needed it, each time, all the time.

i hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

    I was just wondering what sort of bed frame you use for your girls beds. I see they have no headboard right?

      you’re right, no headboard. just a cheep metal bed frame – i think its called a hollywood bed frame?

    Where did you get the comforters from? Or duvet covers?
